The combined study of English with Philosophy to acquire knowledge related to your professional, academic, or social activities, will enhance your career prospects.
This distance learning course is modelled on teaching at the University of Oxford to include guided home study, private tuition, and free reading and AV lectures.
Students agree that private tuition is the most powerful and effective element of our courses as it motivates, inspires, and affords a deeper understanding of English.
You may choose a topic for each study assignment and work at your own pace until you are ready to write and argue for or against the issues you have identified.
Each study assignment will include prescribed reading and AV lectures to help you write a balanced analysis of the topic for online presentation to your tutor.
During each private tutorial, your tutor will evaluate your written work for use of English, critical analysis, philosophical content, argumentation, and writing style.
Guided home study of English with Philosophy will expand your use of Professional-English as you read, listen, and write to address issues that concern us today.
Stronger reasoning skills will enable you to think beyond the facts and gain a professional and social edge at work and elsewhere, and benefit from opportunities.

Philosophy is relevant to the workplace, where critical reasoning and analysis provide balance to troubleshooting, project management, policy making, and teamwork.
Philosophy looks at beliefs and opinions about the world, the health of society, the limits to knowledge, moral values and use of free will, and our duties to posterity.
Other topics address the notion of democratic government, whether we are ultimately selfish, how the mind and body interact, and the nature of personal identity.
This short video is a good example of how philosophy can look at business strategies and suggest how they ought to change for the good of the world:
Philosophy is valued in the fields of manufacturing, marketing, advertising, media production, journalism, IT, the professions, education, sport, and public services.
